German Apple Pancake



2 large eggs

2/3 cup half and half

½ cup flour

4 tablespoons melted butter

4 tablespoons granulated sugar

¾ teaspoon cinnamon

1 large golden delicious apple – peeled and thin sliced

1 teaspoon powdered sugar

Pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Combine eggs, half and half, flour, 2 tablespoons melted butter, 1 tablespoon sugar, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth.

Brush remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter over bottom and sides of 10 inch cast-iron skillet. Add apples, sprinkle remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon over apples. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until apples are just tender – about 6 months.

Once apples are tender, pour batter over apple mixture and bake in 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown on top. Remove the skillet from the oven, cut around pancake and invert onto a platter. Sift powdered sugar over the top of pancake. Cut into wedges and serve with butter, maple syrup and additional powdered sugar.
